“Best Accommodations in Gruene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2008

Gruene River Inn is a nice cross between a hotel and a B&B. It has a great location on the the river bank. It is close enough to shopping and Gruene Hall while far enough away to be really quiet. The personalized service will make you feel right at home. The rooms are a little small, but with gas fireplaces and river-view balconies they are a great place to stay. I highly recommend this inn.

We traveled from Virginia to a wedding in Texas and the hosts recommended the Gruene River Inn. This was a nice, clean inn perfectly suited for a large wedding party. The location was great. Very close to historic Gruene. We walked to town each day. The rooms were very clean and each bathroom had a tub for two. The breakfast was self serve and very good. The owners were on the property and were very nice and fun to talk with.

All in all, this was a very pleasant experience. I would definitely stay here again. The only slight negative is that the beds were a little bit hard for my taste. I have back problems and have gotten used to my own foam topped bed and the ones that most of the major hotels are switching to. However, this minor item would not keep me from coming back to this nice place again.

This place was more like a hotel than a bed and breakfast. The inside was really neat, loved the wooden floors. The room was nice and cozy, very tiny though. Smaller than your average hotel room. The balcony was also pretty small, although the view of the river was very nice. The bathroom was very nice! Jacuzzi tub fits two people which their website fails to mention. We stayed on the 2nd floor, I think the 1st floor is probably better to stay on. You can hear people walking up and down the stairs regardless of which level you stay on, and the view is very high up, even on the 1st floor. Oh, Endless supply of hot water! Very nice, hot jacuzzi in every room! Never ran out of hot water after a huge bath and very long shower. Nice, comfy big bath towels, and the pillow-top bed was extra comfy. Just wish it was bigger than double-size. Nice spread for breakfast, 4 types of tacos, and the typical continental type stuff. They also have snacks like cake and crackers available the rest of the time.

  • Liked — Large Jacuzzi Tub
  • Disliked — Tiny Room and Balcony
  • Tips/Secrets — Stay on the 1st Floor
